seen from president obama and the american jobs act a couple of years ago was that, a bipartisan approach, giving tax credits to employers to hire individuals and at the same time forcing individuals to go out and get the job training they need. unfortunately, the great idea like this gets stalled in the house of representatives. it doesn't move forward and the american people suffer. and that's a sad reality of the situation. what we really need is bipartisan solutions, people coming together, people working together to uplift and end poverty. we're the richest country in the world and ending poverty should be one of our top priorities because that's how we maintain our global leadership worldwide is by ending poverty across this country. sadly, i don't think the focus is here in washington like it needs to be. >> good to see both of you, thanks. >>> today's tweet of the day comes from pope francis. if we see someone who needs help, do we stop? there is so much suffering and poverty and a great need for good samaritans. you know, ronny... folks who save hundreds of dollars by sw

budget office made in may of where the health care obama care would be in year one. that estimate was done, obviously, before the website spent two months being broken. so there is what was underlying that estimate is over. it's not going to happen. but back when -- in june and may when i spoke to the obama administration about how they thought about zubsuccess, they not use seven million number. they did not say getting seven million and one million was young and healthy. success was all about getting this right, getting the ratios right so the premiums would be low enough that over the first two or three years it would be a good deal and people would come in. so the important thing for the administration is not seven million versus five million versus nine million. it's how many of them are young and healthy. they need about 40% in order to keep premiums at the levels they want them. >> and to that point, there was a recent gallup poll. 37% of americans under 30 are the least familiar with the health care law. more than any other age group. and obviously we've talked about the fact

>>> and president obama's message of hope and change convinced young people to support him more than any other democratic candidate in 30 years, but a new poll shows they may be slipping away. we'll dig into what's going on and how important millennials are to both obama care and the obama presidency. >>> good morning. i'm chris jansing, and this morning we're looking at what the president calls the defining challenge of our time, income and equality. he's got a lot of statistics to back him up, but consider just this one. between 1978 and 2011 worker compensation has gone up by 5.7%, on average, for most of us, for a ceo, they've gotten a 725% raise. fast food workers say they are living examples of the effect of income and equality. today thousands of them are walking off the job in more than a hundred cities off the country demanding to be paid $15 an hour. >> i actually work two jobs. i work mcdonald's and wendy's and it's still not enough. the cost of living still seems to be rising over my head and still making difficult, daily sacrifices and i work two job, minimum wage i

out there. one is that 100,000 people signed up for obama care on the federal change in november, more than three times the number in october. also spending has grown by an estimated 1.3% a year since 2010. that's the lowest on record. price inflation is at its lowest rate in 50 years. the slow growth in health care spending has made a big dent in the long-term federal budget. so aren't those all good things? >> well, those would be good things. 100,000 people getting involved but there weren't five million people were kicked off their insurance. so 100,000 signing up when five million people lost it is a tough figure to say that's a positive thing. you've still got millions that don't have insurance and have had difficulty signing up. and if they don't sign up in the next three weeks, people that were insured are going to lose insurance in january. if you look at just my district, for instance, i have 1500 small businesses that all work together that create a high risk pool. those high risk pools are now considered illegal under the affordable care act so all of them are out sho
